Protect student privacy and ensure research data security

Intellectual property like student data and research data needs to be shared to be useful, but sensitive information must be protected.

Secure sensitive research data

Research data is a huge source of income for major universities, and ensuring research data security is increasingly critical. If that data gets lost or stolen, it can cost millions of dollars and expose the university to litigation. By securing your network and cloud infrastructure—including files that researchers are constantly sharing—you can prevent lost or stolen data.

Simplify regulatory compliance

Schools and universities hold a wealth of staff and student data—academic aptitude, financial status, physical and mental health records—that needs to remain secure to protect privacy. Centralized application management and enterprise grade file sync and sharing make it easier to keep staff and student data secure and prove regulatory compliance.  

Because of Citrix, we have created a student-centric BYOD environment that allows for independent and exploratory learning.
